Roasted Beetroot and Cauliflower Soup
Last year around the same time I made this beautiful roasted beetroot and tomato soup. Roasting beets is the best way to cook them, I believe. Simply wrap them in foil, throw them into a preheated oven and let them cook for about an hour, depending on their size. They seem to retain their colour, flavour and form when roasted. But with cauliflower, I just cook it in water till it’s tender. Another simple soup I had made was this cauliflower soup.
The temperature here in Gurgaon is low enough to make me want to crawl into my oven. That’s why soups are my favourite go-to meal in a bowl this winter. Since I make a meal of it, just broth soups don’t cut it. It has to have some body and full of flavour. So far my roasted beetroot and tomato soup and carrot and lemongrass soup have been hits. This soup though was inspired from Nigella Lawson’s after I saw a picture she posted on Instagram. I absolutely loved the bright yellow colour and wanted to cook something similar.
